SPEEDWAY, IN. — Tyler Reddick won Sunday’s Verizon 200 at the Indianapolis Grand Prix Circuit after leading 38 laps and winning stage two.
Reddick’s win was the second of his NASCAR Cup Series career and came four races after he earned his first win at Road America – the series’ most recent road course race.
Reddick is the first driver to earn their first two career wins on a road course in the same year since Tim Richmond in 1982 when he swept the races at the now-closed Riverside, Cali. road course.
Reddick is now 11th in the regular-season points, just 26 points behind Kevin Harvick to earn a playoff point for being 10th in points.
Reddick is projected to start the playoffs in 8th with 2013 points, six ahead of Chase Briscoe, who is 13th and would be below the cutline if the playoffs started now.
There are four regular-season races left until the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs start Sept. 4 at Darlington Raceway.
